See The Difference?

This is one of those pictures that is worth a thousand words and so much more...



 Mother Teresa Quotes:

"America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts -- a child -- as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters"
And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign." (Mother Teresa -- "Notable and Quotable," Wall Street Journal, 2/25/94, p. A14)


"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even his life to love us. So the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love - that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts. By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion. "

"Please don't kill the child. I want the child. Please give me the child. I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted, and to give that child to a married couple who will love the child, and be loved by the child. From our children's home in Calcutta alone, we have saved over 3,000 children from abortions. These children have brought such love and joy to their adopting parents, and have grown up so full of love and joy!"
February 1997 - National Prayer Breakfast in Washington attended by the President and the First Lady. "What is taking place in America," she said, "is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another."
"Any country that accepts abortion, is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants."
"It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."

What a wonderful post. The photo, the text everything. I always find it interesting that people could ever take offense to someone who has a right to life position. I think Mother Teresa is right on the money about what she said about our country; the fix is for good people to continue to write posts like this. Bravo! stopping by from Brighton Park.:-)

We have company today, but my husband and one of my daughters are participating with our Church for Respect Life Sunday. I wish we could have all participated this year. Normally, we get a lot of waves and horn-blowing... only the occasional negative.

Happy Sunday, Tracy! +JMJ+

Hi Katie!
Thanks for your encouraging words and you're right, it's amazing how so many our offended by the pro-life position! We shall overcome...one day with prayer and persistence! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Jackie!
So glad you were able to stop by and leave your kind comments! Pro-lifers need to come together to make our voices heard for those little ones that have no voice in the womb! God bless!

HI Annita,
It was a beautiful day for our Life Chain Sunday as I took our older 3 kids with me to stand alongside a busy street in our hometown. Silent, praying and holding up pro-life signs each year on Respect Life Sunday is always an eye opening experience for sure! We got more beeps and thumbs up than we did thumbs down and other hand gestures! It's amazing how peaceful the pro-lifers prayerfully stand while those cars that pass by are sometimes full of anger and unhappy faces. We will continue to pray for sure! Thanks for stopping by Annita and commenting! I had a few minutes and thought I would send you this blog comment vs. an email :) God bless and have a blessed week! :)
